If you want to know who rules over you, ask yourself who you're not allowed to criticize

In politics and the media it is easy to tell whom they fear, because they will identify the person using relentless – and often ridiculous and baseless – personal attacks and character assassination. After all, if you know a political opponent is not strong enough to defeat you, there is nothing to fear and no reason to spend time and political capital demonizing them – right?
The same concept also applies when it comes to identifying who it is that has dominion, power or control over you – all you have to do is criticize the "wrong" person or political ideal, and you'll instantly know; the severity of the reaction will tell you everything.
For example, in recent days the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton went after historic Hollywood comedy club Laugh Factory, because a number of performers mocked various aspects of Clinton's personality, age and wardrobe.
"They threatened me," club owner Jamie Masada, who opened the club more than thirty years ago and has helped launch the careers of many funny men and women, told legal watchdog Judicial Watch. "I have received complain[t]s before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don't cut the video."
Masada said that as soon as video snippets of the performances went up on the club's website he received a phone call from a "prominent" person inside Clinton's campaign. "He said the video was disgusting and asked who put me up to this," Masada said, adding that the person demanded to know the names and addresses and other contact info of the comedians – information Masada said he refused to supply.
This is similar to what is taking place on American college campuses today. As reported by The Daily Caller, for instance, a young student attending Georgia Southern University (GSU) was lambasted and punished for publicly criticizing the racially-charged protests that occurred recently at the University of Missouri.
Emily Faz, a senior at GSU, was reportedly fired from her job and then targeted by other students who demanded that she be expelled for sharing a Washington Times article from Nov. 14 on social media, in which she took issue with how some Mizzou protesters and activists with Black Lives Matter became upset after the ISIS-sponsored terrorist attacks in Paris began garnering more news coverage.
Faz wrote above the story link, "I swear if I see this B.S. at Southern I will make you regret even knowing what a movement or a hashtag is, and you'll walk away with your tail tucked."
'You can't speak your mind!'
She continued, "The whole black lives matter movement is misguided and out of hand. Maybe no one likes or takes y'all seriously because no one can see past your egotistical bullshit. Some people might just look past it, but fair warning I am not one. All lives matter, that has always been the case, and you part of the problem if you think other wise [sic]."
Her post went viral and earned instant ire from many, including black GSU students who behaved on social media as if only they have a right to speak their minds. And in response, the GSU chapter of the NAACP staged a "Black Out, Walk Out" event a few short days after Paz made her post, then issued demands to the school which – like all the other Black Lives Matter demands at other American college campuses – included mandatory studies of black culture, and the hiring of more black college professors.
Couch these examples with a president who uses the power of his office to punish and prosecute journalists who report things that he doesn't like. In fact, Obama has used the 1917 Espionage Act to prosecute members of the media and government whistle-blowers more than any previous president – including President Woodrow Wilson, the man who signed the Espionage Act into law.
So, want to know who rules over you? All you need to do is see who reacts the most violently to your criticism.
